“Petrofac confirmed that its chief executive, Ayman Asfari, and chief operating officer Marwan Chedid have been questioned under caution by the SFO.
The FTSE 250 group added that the SFO has commenced an investigation which it believes is in connection with the investigation into Unaoil.
The services firm has found itself at the centre of a global corruption scandal that erupted after leaked documents implicate the oil services group in an investigation into Monaco-based Unaoil which is alleged to have paid bribes on behalf of oil companies.
